Matthew 12:22-28New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Pharisees Rebuked
22 Then a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute was brought to [a]Jesus, and He healed him, so that the mute man spoke and saw.23 All the crowds were amazed, and were saying, “This man cannot be the Son of David, can he?”24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “This man casts out demons only by [b]Beelzebul the ruler of the demons.”
25 And knowing their thoughts Jesus said to them, “[c]Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and [d]any city or house divided against itself will not stand.26 If Satan casts out Satan, he [e]is divided against himself; how then will his kingdom stand?27 If I by [f]Beelzebul cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? For this reason they will be your judges.28 But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
